Bad Meat in the Food Supply and New Leadership at the LA Times
Listen to/Watch entire show:
One hundred forty-three million pounds of beef have been recalled from a meatpacking plant in Chino where videotape showed that sick animals became part of the food supply. Most of the meat has already been eaten. Also, the Los Angeles Times has its fourth editor in three years. He says his first mission will be shrinking the size of the newsroom.
Huge Beef Recall from Chino Slaughterhouse ()Daniel Ugarte Navarro has been arrested at home in Pomona and charged with abusing cows at the Westland/Hallmark Meat Company in Chino. That’s the packing plant that recalled 143 million pounds of beef over the weekend—everything it produced in the past two years.
New Leadership at the LA Times ()Past editors of the LA Times have boasted national and international experience. They’ve won prizes and served on other major papers, including the New York Times. Reporting that Russ Stanton will be next in change, the Times said, “He takes the editor’s desk without the same range of experience of his predecessors.”
